The Last Word
  • The past, present, and future walked into a bar. It was tense.
  • A verb walks into a bar, sees a beautiful noun, and suggests they conjugate. The noun declines.
  • A malapropism walks into a bar, looking for all intensive purposes like a wolf in cheap clothing, muttering epitaphs and casting dispersions on his magnificent other, who takes him for granite.
  • An oxymoron walked into a bar: the silence was deafening.
  • Hyperbole totally rips into this insane bar and absolutely destroys everything.
  • A question mark walks into a bar?
  • A non sequitur walks into a bar. In a strong wind, even turkeys can fly.
  • A mixed metaphor walks into a bar, sees the handwriting on the wall, but hopes to nip it in the bud.
  • Three intransitive verbs walk into a bar. They sit, converse, and depart.
